Sharon Recreation Department

The Sharon Recreation Department supports recreational and leisure time activities for all of Sharon’s residents. Among the programs and opportunties it provides are: sports for all ages; exercise, dance and theater classes; a LEGO program; summer lakeside concerts; beach and boating activities; sledding and ice skating; hiking trails; and summer camp.

Being a Partner in SPN helps the Recreation Department reach out to members of the community who might not normally utilize its programs. In turn, the Recreation Department provides facilities and resources for other SPN Partners. The Recreation Department provided space in the Community Center for the opening of SPN’s “Sharon’s Many Traditions Photo Exhibit,” with the goal of bringing new and more diverse people to the Community Center. It also hosts an annual ping pong tournament during February school vacation week, originally started by a local middle school student. This event brings together youth and adults from all backgrounds, including Sharon’s Chinese elders. Players compete across the tables even though many speak different languages. Amanda Levasseur, Recreation Director, is happy to hear from Sharon’s residents about their ideas, including suggestions for programs or activities related to different cultural traditions.
